Is this coronavirus?
I have been having fever, stomach ache and running stool for the past few days. Kindly let me know if what I have is Coronavirus. If not, kindly let me know the symptoms of Coronavirus.
Since Coronavirus (COVID-19) is a respiratory infection, your symptoms do not match those of a Coronavirus patient. The most commonly reported symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, cough and shortness of breath. Chills, body aches, sore throat, runny nose, headache, diarrhoea and nausea are also possible. Some doctors have also reported seeing COVID-19 patients who had lost their sense of smell or taste. However, if your complaints persist after using the medically prescribed drugs, you may need to seek further medical attention to rule out Covid-19 infection.
